This home was apparently built for Bette Davis in 1940, using materials from local barns. For the era, it has a very open floorplan and many large windows with pretty views of the woods, mountains and a small valley river. Throw in a silo staircase, and there is plenty to delight those who enjoy rustic architecture.
Once you know you are staying in a circa 1940 country home, you should adjust your expectations as to the condition of the building and its furnishings, of course. But even so, we found the house to be a bit too shabby for what we would expect. It is clearly time to clean the upholstered furnishings and rugs, which are all visibly dirty and smokey. The condition of the counters and appliances made the kitchen feel dirty, thought it was properly cleaned. On the other hand, the home is filled with interesting bits of decor and relics.
One thing that I feel is NOT clear about this house is the bedroom descriptions. This is not truly a 4BR house, and I would not find it appropriate for more that one adult couple, due to privacy. The bedrooms are as follows: one large Q MBR with adjoining full bath. One closet converted to a single twin room.
Then there are two sleeping areas without any doors. One of those areas has 2 twins in it, one has 2 double beds. Everyone not sleeping in the MBR has to go THROUGH the twin bedded and double bedded areas (they do not have doors so I am not calling them rooms), in order to reach the common bathroom.
We were a family of five, so it was not an issue. But the only real bedrooms, ie, ones with doors, are the MBR and the one closet twin. I would think adult couples would only want to stay in a real room, with a door.
RECOMMENDATION -- it depends on the age and size of group, and how much you value the charm and history, versus property condition. I recommend it with caveats.
